Nouhou Tolo (/ˈnuːhuː ˈtoʊloʊ/; born June 23, 1997), known mononymically as Nouhou, is a Cameroonian footballer who plays as a left back for Seattle Sounders FC in Major League Soccer.
Nouhou began his career in 2015 with Rainbow Bamenda, where he played for one season. A contract dispute over who owned his rights between teams in Cameroon initially blocked his transfer to the United States, but in April 2016, Nouhou signed with Seattle Sounders FC 2. He made 24 league appearances and lead the team in minutes played.
Nouhou signed with Seattle Sounders FC on January 26, 2017, earning his first team contract after performing admirably for S2 in 2016, according to General Manager Garth Lagerway. Nouhou scored his first professional goal while loaned down to S2 on April 15, 2017, the second goal in a 2–1 away win over LA Galaxy II.
Nouhou made his Seattle Sounders FC debut on May 31, 2017, coming on as a substitute in a 3–0 loss to Columbus.
In February 2017, Nouhou was called up to represent the Cameroon U20s in the 2017 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations in Zambia. Nouhou made his under-20 debut on February 27, 2017, starting at left back in a 3–1 loss against South Africa in the first group stage game of the tournament.
Nouhou made his debut for the Cameroon national football team in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification 2-2 tie with Zambia on 11 November 2017.
